Our Mission Statement

To provide each member the opportunity to reach their full potential by providing high quality athletic programs in an inclusive and positive environment.

Every athlete’s involvement in our programs is highly valued by the club. While only a small proportion will reach the higher competitive levels we feel that it is important to create programs that will inspire children to view sport and athletics as a lifelong habit. Thus we have created a wide variety of programs to cater to all skill and ability levels. We also strive to accomplish this in a positive encouraging environment incorporating important elements of sportsmanship, cooperation and team spirit.

Club History

 

Mr. Jim Hoyle started the Dartmouth Titans Gymnastics Club in 1968. Gymnasts trained 2 evenings a week in Prince Andrew High School. We have now grown to be one of the largest clubs in eastern Canada and are presently a fully incorporated non-profit society. In 2005 our name changed to Titans Gymnastics and Trampoline Club to better reflect our operations.

The club boasts a strong competitive Women’s Artistic program, a Men’s Artistic competitive program, a Trampoline and Tumbling competitive program, several competitive cheer teams, and a large and diverse recreational program. We also offer a number of other recreational activities including:

  • Preschool
  • Tumbling
  • “Oldies” Adult drop-in
  • Birthday Parties
  • Hip Hop and Creative Movement dance classes
  • Special needs classes
  • School and other group visits

We regularly produce national calibre athletes from our ranks and are a proud member of Gymnastics Nova Scotia.
